Talented school children from across Scotland and beyond proved their golfing mettle in the St Leonards National Junior Golf Championship.
As if taking on the challenges presented by three of the famous St Andrews Links courses wasn�t enough, 170 young birdie hunters had to prove they could handle changeable weather conditions, including sun, wind, rain and a heavy hail stone shower!
The competitors, who had come from as far as Bromsgrove to take part, proved that they were up to the task by posting a series of impressive scores. One player � Tom Le Seuer from Stewart�s Melville College � even scored a hole-in-one on the 12th hole of the Balgove Course.
The prestigious annual event is run in conjunction with the St Andrews Links Management Committee. Under 9s play the Balgove Course, U11s and U13s take to the fairways of the Strathtyrum Course and U15s tackle the Eden Course.
Rosie Dawson, PE teacher at St Leonards, said, �The players were faced with some pretty tricky conditions but they all enjoyed the opportunity to play at the home of golf.
�St Leonards pupils are fortunate to have the wonderful facilities of St Andrews Links on their doorstep and it�s always a pleasure for the School to welcome students from across Scotland to play in this unique setting.�
